Bulgarian Ring of Death on the Black Sea Coast

Scientists leading excavations at the place of residence of the aristocrats discovered an unusual find, by the way, the first in Bulgaria - a special ring of death of 14th century BC.

The head of the archaeological expedition named Boni Petrunova and bulgarian archaeologists have unearthed a well-preserved poison ring, used to spike an opponent's goblet of wine or dinner with a deadly dose of toxicity. The poison ring has a small container welded to the bezel, which would have been used to carry poison, and a tiny hole that would have allowed the wearer to easily dispense a drop into someone’s food or drink.

The hole is there on purpose and the ring was worn on the right hand, because the hole was made in such a way so as to be covered by a finger, so that the poison can be dropped at a moment’s notice. Clearly, it was not worn constantly and would have been put on when necessary. The ring, which is the first of its kind found in Bulgaria, was found in an area that housed the local aristocracy. It may well have been used for politically-motivated murder in the second half of the 14th century during the conflict between the ruler of the independent, Dobrotitsa, and his son Ivanko Terter, in which many nobles were killed.  
Mutual hatred raised a number of unexplained deaths in aristocratic families of the Northern Black Sea. It is possible that the finding of Bulgarian archaeologists played a major role in this detective story.
